What’s Going on With Schedules this Year

There has been recent confusion with the change in Klein Cain’s lunch schedules, along with the addition of a new lunch taking further time from the school day. Apparently, there’s also been a difference in bells further puzzling students as to when their own class period ends.

“I have D lunch and it was hard to adjust to at first,” senior Terrin Bourgeois said. This is her second year at Klein Cain. “I’m used to Landfall being after third period, and still find myself going to the wrong class after Landfall because of it.”

Adjusted Pep Rally Schedules

The administration has been aiding both students and teachers in getting their schedule under control and figuring out when they can leave their classroom. However, depending on the student’s schedule, they’ll be leaving to either their next class, lunch, or even back to the class they were just in.

Furthermore, certain students such as Bourgeois don’t find going from class to class to be such an easy task. On top of the confusion, she’s been going to rooms from one side of the campus to another.

“My schedule is unique because I have two orchestra periods and I’m traveling across the school between every class period,” Bourgeois said. “Like 2400’s to Orchestra to 2200’s to 1100’s to Orchestra to 2300’s to 1100’s again.”

Getting accustomed to their new routine

One of the problems students encountered was having two different lunches listed, those being “A” and “B”. In that instance, they are instructed to head on to “A” lunch. Though it was initially a struggle to help students and staff understand how to go by their day with the multiple schedule sheets, there’s been repetitive guidance from principals and teachers. 

“I’m still getting accustomed to it, but I think I will have it down by next week,” Bourgeois said.
